I was determined to buy myself some fun, girly and sexy summer sandals. No more of those good for you shoes that makes you feel old and frumpy. Truth is that I am not a shoeaholic, I am a shoe phobic. I buy shoes because I have to wear something on my feet. Then after awhile I realize that they hurt and I return to my dansko clogs.
Well I was determined to buy myself some nice pretty sandals this season. I have decided that I didn't want anything clunky or "good for you."I wanted to be sleek and sophisticated.
So I went on a sandal hunt. Considering there are still Memorial Day sales all over the place I figured I could find some rather nice shoes for a decent price. WRONG. The only thing I saw that might have worked were some Gucci's for around $500. Now remember I had an issue with a Gucci product recently. Gucci does not stand behind their products and I wrote about that HERE. Moreover, the idea that I would actually pay so much money for a piece of leather attached to a toe-thong is ridiculous.
I did look at the classic Jack Roger sandal. But not only did they no longer have the color I wanted,
Reluctantly, I had to come to the realization that perhaps I really did have to return to fitflops or Merrills for the summer. For everyday, I do have my dansko sandals from years ago and they are still in good shape. But you do need a change of shoe. So back to the local store I went and fitflops I did buy.
I think they will be OK. Not exactly elegant, but apparently they are the shoe of the moment. Or so I am told.
